The 12th International Conference on Risks and Security of Internet and Systems

Tuesday, 19 September, 2017

The International Conference on Risks and Security of Internet and Systems 2017 will be the 12th in a series dedicated to security issues in Internet-related applications, networks and systems. The conference will be held on 19th-21st September 2017 in Dinard, France.

The CRiSIS conference offers a remarkable forum for computer and network security actors from industry, academia and government to meet, exchange ideas and present recent advances on Internet-related security threats and vulnerabilities, and on the solutions that are needed to counter them.

WISER will be represented at the CRISIS conference with the paper "A Method for Developing Qualitative Security Risk Assessment Algorithms" in which the authors Atle Refsdal and Gencer Erdogan (SINTEF) describe the method established in WISER project to develop qualitative algorithms for assessing cyber risks.

Here's a short abstract of the paper:

"We present a method for developing qualitative security risk assessment algorithms where the input captures the dynamic state of the target of analysis. This facilitates continuous monitoring. The intended users of the method are security and risk practitioners interested  in developing assessment algorithms for their own or their client's organization. Managers and decision makers will typically be end users of the assessments provided by the algorithms. In order to promote stakeholder involvement, the method is designed to ensure that the algorithm and the underlying risk model are simple to understand. We have employed the method to create assessment algorithms for 10 common cyber attacks, and use one of these to demonstrate the approach."
